Currys are currently advertising 10% off all soundbars with code SOUNDBAR10 (ends Tuesday).

This means you can get, for example, the SONOS Playbar for £512.10.

I went for the Samsung HW-K550, which is currently listed at £219 (£214 at Co-Op Electrical) but with the code applied it comes down to £197.10.

If voting cold please provide a reason and preferably a place where I can pick up the items cheaper. Thanks!

Edited post to remove Quidco cashback as it won't track due to use of voucher code.

I bought 2 recently and both have turned out to be faulty.

Quidco will not track as you can not use promo codes with it

Doubt cash back will track if using the code

No quidco with this one

I know they are expensive but Sonos are quality, and sound very good

I agree with you, Sonos are amazing but too expensive. Especially if you are looking to get the subwoofer seperate to go with it too.

Never had issues with samsung products before though so very dissapointed with these 2 purchases.

Bit pricey - assume they must be good or people would not buy the stuff,
I'll stick to my samsung J450 (refurb but only £69)

Just out of interest , can I ask what was faulty on the Samsung units?

I can't believe how overhyped the Sonos playbar and sub are especially for the money! I have multiple Sonos products round the house so love the system but sound quality on an £1100 package is nowhere near where it should be!

Do these really sound better than a wired 5:1 system?

It's not about the product cost. As an owner you know that a Sonos are still providing enhancements and updates to improve or add features. If you have a problem Sonos will respond - unlike Samsung. You also pay for design and simplicity,it just works, and even the other half will use it. She didn't go near my 7.1 Yamaha and Onkyo setups.
Just like Apple, and Dyson, the price is not just for the product.

you really think so? That sound bar alone has 9 speakers inside it lol My mate has it and the subwoofer and I was really impressed with the sound quality. The bass was very good too.

I just think it's way too much to spend on a sound system especially when I don't intend to blast it full whack everyday.

k430 - the wireless sub kept making high pitched noises and was very noticable and annoying. The soundbar itself was fine.

K450 - everything was fine the first day but the next day the sub disconnected. Had to pair it again but a day later it disconnects again. Now it won't pair up again. I searched online and seems to be a common fault with this one.

9 rubbish speakers don't make it good! (Not saying they are but you get the idea)

Number of speakers doesn't make it a better or worse system. It's down to the quality

I have KEF separate speakers and a Q acoustics sub plus denon amp that absolutely annihilates that Sonos playbar and sub and was cheaper overall.

Disappointing for me as I love my Sonos play 5's, 3's and 1's. They're good for their intended purpose whereas this system isn't in my opinion

Isn't the point of this post about 10% off not about the Sonos play bar?

Yes but the OP put the Sonos SB as an example of using this code and Quidco 11% cashback but alas they cannot be used together

Just my luck I've been coming on here looking for the samsung k550, saw this got excited, only to find our it's OOS!

HW-K551 (silver version) is still available at Currys with code or on Amazon (dispatched and sold by Amazon) for the same price if you can compromise on colour?

Unfortunately not as it would stand out a mile against the TV and furniture. However, I apologise as I didn't read your deal properly, Co op electricals do have it in stock and without it I wouldn't have found it. Not sure why it's gone so cold though.

Not currys fault if both units are faulty. Blame the manufacture

Currys are but currys didn't make the product so they can't be blamed for faulty product but for warranty claim than you can blame currys if they don't get it resolved

Why cold? Normal price all year round is £599 and it hardly ever goes down and defiantly not this much.

This is what is wrong with this website in general... Many people vote cold simply because a product is outside their price range. The first comment in this post is also another example of cold voting based purely on anecdotal evidence. You couldn't (at time of posting) find the SONOS Playbar for anywhere near this price. Next time I'll post a rubbish Alba set from Argos for £20...

Not quite, this started off cold because the deal at the start included additional money off through 11% cashback which was not achievable. This was then amended although you will find that once a deal is in the negative, it tends to stay that way

Hey, you appear to have plenty of experience with various audio equipment so i was wondering if you could help me out?

I would love to get a Play:1 but I know it's not the right piece of kit for me.

What other speakers are there where it has wireless/app accessibility but also offers line in for record players/tv's etc?
